BMEL WRAPPED 2020: Part Three


All weekend long, we're featuring some of our writers' favourite tunes in 2020!

Here are Rikki Red's...


I can barely believe that 2020 has come and gone! What a year it was. We started Borderless Melodies, we obviously dealt with some life changing issues globally, and so many other things happened that will transform our lives for years to come. At the end of the day, we made it through and we have brighter days ahead. Just like we like to say at BMEL, music transcends all boundaries - that includes emotional and mental ones. Here are twenty songs that really helped get me through this year and some of the most notable lyrics that kept me going. These aren’t all 2020 releases. :)


WHY I LOVE YOU: MAJOR

I found love in you

And I learned to love me too

Never have I felt that I could be all that you see

It's like our hearts have intertwined into the perfect harmony


HOLY: JUSTIN BIEBER FT CHANCE THE RAPPER

I know I ain't leavin' you like I know He ain't leavin' us

I know we believe in God and I know God believes in us


DON’T START NOW: DUA LIPA

Though it took some time to survive you I'm better on the other side

I'm all good already

So moved on, it's scary

IF THE WORLD WAS ENDING: JP SAXE FT JULIA MICHAELS

But if the world was ending

You'd come over, right?

You'd come over and you'd stay the night

Would you love me for the hell of it?

All our fears would be irrelevant



MR BRIGHTSIDE: THE KILLERS

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea

Swimming through sick lullabies

Choking on your alibis

But it's just the price I pay


ANGIE: THE ROLLING STONES (2020)

Angie, Angie

When will those dark clouds all disappear

Angie, Angie

Where will it lead us from here

With no lovin' in our souls

And no money in our coats

You can't say we're satisfied


HURT: ARLO PARKS

I know you can't let go Of anything at the moment

Just know it won't hurt so

Won't hurt so much forever


LET ME LOVE YOU LIKE A WOMAN: LANA DEL REY

Talk to me in songs and poems

Don't make me be bittersweet

Let me love you like a woman


DEAD OF NIGHT: ORVILLE PECK

Six summers down, another dreamless night

You're not by my side

Scratch on the moon, like a familiar smile

Stained on my mind

Some other town, someone else's life

Dead in the night, in the night


OBEY: BRING ME THE HORIZON FT YUNGBLUD

Another day, another systematic nightmare

Commemorate a wonderful life

Bite me first, I'll bite you back

Melodramatic laughter


FINE LINE: HARRY STYLES


Put a price on emotion

I'm looking for something to buy

You've got my devotion

But man, I can hate you sometimes


BRAND NEW: MIC LOWRY

Yeah, I’m glad I found you, yeah

Even though I know your love it stills feel brand new


LONESOME LOVE: MITSKI

Walk up in my high heels

All high and mighty

And you say, "Hello"

And I lose


A CHANGE IS GONNA COME: SAM COOKE

It's been too hard living

But I'm afraid to die

'Cause I don't know what's up there

Beyond the sky


ALL DAY AND NIGHT: THE STRIFES

Why did you come out to play

You know I can’t help myself to a game of charades

But now I’m all yours


TOOSIE SLIDE: DRAKE

It go, right foot up, left foot slide

Left foot up, right foot slide

Basically, I'm sayin' either way, we 'bout to slide, ayy

Can't let this one slide, ayy (who's bad?) (This one had to be added - it was stuck in my head ALL year!)


3 NIGHTS: DOMINIC FIKE

So I get lost in modern music watching movies

Talking to the walls in my room

Walking through the halls in my head

Just tryna make sure it all makes sense


THE LAKES: TAYLOR SWIFT

I want auroras and sad prose

I want to watch wisteria grow right over my bare feet

'Cause I haven't moved in years

And I want you right here


MAKE IT BETTER: ANDERSON .PAAK FT SMOKEY ROBINSON

When you take somebody for your own

It can't survive on history alone


PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE: CHARLOTTE CARDIN

But I love myself too much

To waste good years on bad love (waste good years on bad love)

And you've been falling hard these days

But it's not my job to save you


We made it! Here’s to whatever comes our way in 2021. I know we’ll get through it together.

What were your must-have songs during 2020?
